My second job

Yesterday I received another email with a 2-page list of things that I still need to do prior to closing (in 22 days). After congratulating me on signing a contract, it went on to say:

Our sales team works to represent the interest of the Home Trust –not you or our seller. For that reason, this may seem like a second job with all the calls, meetings and documentation you will be responsible for. This hard work and all the time and energy will be worthwhile once we hand you the keys to your new home!

Excuse me for saying so, but motherfucker! Can we just close already??

I tried punching the list but it didn't go away.

Yesterday I had all intentions of going for a run after work and then after receiving this list and because of the fact that it was 91 degree outside, I decided to take a nap. Some people deal with stress by eating. I sleep. In college it worked wonders. Until I ended up losing ten pounds and the only thing I did was sleep, workout, and study.

I decided yesterday that this whole thing is like conducting an orchestra; making sure everyone is on the same page and working toward the final, perfectly conducted, goal.

YOU! Play nice!

My friend Terrell said it's like they just want to make sure I really want it. It's still a mystery to me how there are so many morons out there who own houses.


UPDATE: I sent an e-mail earlier today to the Home Trust to ask about a few things I didn't understand from the checklist I received and it turns out some of them are things they need to do.

Seriously. I just want to sleep through all this shit. And I thought signing the contract was the end of the madness.

Ok, enough bitching. Time for something fun. Caption this picture:



  1. Caption: It's been longer than 4 hours .... Oh no

  2. My realtor did all the work for our home closing. I mean, we just had to arrange for the home inspection and stuff like that...nothing too hard. What are they making you do??

  3. I'm too brain dead from attending a stupid 2 hour meeting to come up with a good caption right now but I'll work on it. I need to go on your diet. I like to eat when I'm stressed, bored, happy, sad, mad, tired, or basically any time I'm breathing.

  4. You know what's a good stress reliever? Running! lol

    The only tricky thing for me buying the house was navigating my and Mike's separate bank accounts because we weren't married, yet. What exactly do you have to do??

  5. Sounds like hazing. I took naps last summer when it was too hot to think or move, and the a/c was not doing a good job of keeping up. One day I thought about going to a friend's pool but I ended up falling asleep for 2.5 hours on the couch. That was a productive day.

  6. Our realtor did everything for the house too. That sounds crazy.

    That towel holder is hilarious.
